Very odd indeed, though the car looks good. It still amazes me they chose the E92 though, the F30 would be a much better choice. Also very odd that they're using the 2-door model while the rest of the field uses 4-door saloons. Dissapointing car, but nonetheless a great field!

The Volvo and SAAB look very nice. Don't like the Citroen (livery) and BMW (front and livery).

The BMW situation is very odd. Doesn't make sense to have BMW decals on the car but no BMW front.

Citroen and Brovallen are friends again?

TTA just wrote on their own forum (translated into English):

"WestCoast Racings car is a BMW and its oficially allowed to be called that from BMW Motorsport. Although its taking longer time to get approval for the logo and front grill."

I guess they are hoping to get the approval before the season starts. Since the body's have just recently been finalised all paperwork isnt ready yet.


The point Citroen made was that Brovallen is not an official Citroen approved "factory team", to officially represent Citroen, in the same way as WCR is the official BMW Dealer Team. However, Brovallen has got support from most Citroen dealers in Sweden, but not from Citroen HQ, so to say.

Tiny has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
The WCR BMW looks pretty odd from the front.
More like a Nissan 350 then a BMW.

Looks like the body does not really fit the frame , different size.

I was actually thinking "Skoda"...

And I still don't get why this can race with a BMW grill and logo, even though it's Chevy V8 powered.

Maybe because they didn't ask BMW and it's more low profile?

Apparently DTM is interested in running up to four joint races in the future. Also Jan Nilsson claims there's a lot of interest from other countries to run TTA spec cars.

(The article is in swedish but google translate should at least give you the general idea.)

But where? DTM hasn't so far bothered to run a race in Scandinavia (Despite a Scandinavian being one of their biggest stars), so why should they now? I read it that Flash plans to hold a sort-of European championship with Solution-F cars, which will runs as a support to DTM. Sounds like a decent idea, but which championships might use Solution-F?

Just thinking out loud, but the Solution-F-cars could perhaps save the ITR's bacon for their planned US-offshot. Right now it seems like they have a hard time drumming up the money for a full field, but if they go for two classes - one for DTM and one for 'DTM light' - as Flash likes to call it -it might be easier to get a full grid, with the lower running costs for Solution F and all...

I'll answer myself; I found this short clip of the TTA SAAB in action at Karlskoga, posted 1 day ago; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y867WirAjLk

They pushed a lot harder than that today at Anderstorp. IMHO it's going to be awesome!
